The Comfort Food Community usually runs a ‘Give Hunger the Boot’ campaign to raise funds in support of the non-profit organization based in Greenwich, NY where proceeds benefited CFC’s programs including: the Greenwich and Cossayuna Food Pantries, the Yes! Backpack Program in partnership with Greenwich Central School, the Greenwich Community Garden and the Fresh Food Collective.

Well, that has changed this year because of the pandemic. It is now: The Kick Covid campaign - a virtual, ‘Peer-to-Peer’ campaign. That means that you can go from supporting the campaign with a single donation, to creating your own mini fundraiser.

Devin Bulger is the Executive Director of Comfort Food Community.

Today, Comfort Food Community is launching their 6th annual "Give Hunger the Boot" campaign. The community-wide campaign will raise funds in support of the non-profit organization based in Greenwich. All proceeds will directly benefit CFC’s program offering including: the Greenwich and Cossayuna Food Pantries, the Yes! Backpack Program in partnership with Greenwich Central School, the Greenwich Community Garden and the Fresh Food Collective.

On Sunday, June 2, the Annual CFC Classic Car Show will be held at the Greenwich VFW from 12-4 p.m.

Proceeds from both events will go directly to Comfort Food Community. We are joined by Devin Bulger, Executive Director of Comfort Food Community and Amanda Willetts, Classic Car Show Event Manager.

 

The 4th Annual Give Hunger the Boot fundraising campaign for Comfort Food Community is underway through June 17th with a goal to raise $15,000. This community-wide campaign was born four years ago through a collaboration between Comfort Food and the Cossayuna Volunteer Fire Department to raise awareness and money to address food insecurity in the much of Southern Washington County. 

Since then much has been accomplished – permanent Pantries in Greenwich and Cossayuna, a fully subscribed Community Garden, the YES! Weekend Backpack program in the GCSD, the Fresh Food Mobile Pantry, and the Greenwich Glean Team.

The highlight of the campaign will be the 4th Annual Classic Car Show which will be held at the VFW field in Greenwich this Sunday, June 4th from noon to 4pm. To tell us more – we welcome Executive Director of the Comfort Food Community Devin Bulger, the President of the Board of Directors, Maryann McGeorge and the Chief of the Cossayuna Fire Department and Comfort Food Board Member Pat Donahue.
